Wicklow Mountains – Ireland

Wicklow Mountains – Ireland

I think that the landscapes of Ireland are seriously underestimated. Whenever thinking about going to a great location for hiking, and exploring landscapes Ireland probably doesn’t pop up as the first option you had in mind. Or as the second one. Or third one.. Maybe it doesn’t even pop up at all.
But if I would have to choose one of the most lovely nature landscapes I’ve seen so far in Europe I must say that Ireland definitely hits my top 5. And I haven’t even seen the biggest part yet.

Whenever thinking about Ireland, please don’t think: ‘I’ve seen Dublin, so I’ve seen it all’. Think about the national parks the country has, think about the cliffs, and think about the stretched meadows that characterize Ireland.

Wicklow Mountains National Park, just one hour away from Dublin, will keep you busy for a long time. It is filled with places to hike and little cities to eat local meals. But mostly it is filled with a lot of viewpoints where you could just stand for hours. Enjoying the feel of Irelands nature. I promise you, Wicklow Mountains National Park isn’t the one to disappoint you.

  • Highly suggest a trip to the Dingle Peninsula if you haven’t been. We stayed in Dingle and biked along a 30 mile loop to Slea Head. Absolutely breathtaking. Rick Steve wrote a great self-guided tour of it here – http://www.smithsonianmag.com/ricksteves/dingle-peninsula-loop-trip-20272095/?no-ist.

    One of my favorite places! ♡ ♡ ♡ the powerscourt falls are amazing! We got to go to Ireland twice this year and I would go again right now.

  • I’ve seen only Dublin in Ireland, and I wanted to murder the professor when she decided not to go outside the city during that week. I so adore the landscapes of Ireland! Since I fall in love with Brittany, which some say is so similar to Ireland, I can’t wait to see more of it!

    One day, one day…

    • One day you will go back;-) If you want it it happens! But Dublin is great too, I’m glad that you got to experience that!

      • Dublin ranks as my favourite city ever so yeah 😀 but I still want to see other things!

  • So sad I didn’t have the time to visit Wicklow Mountains while I was in Ireland this summer. I can highly recommend western Ireland and the connemara area though – the landscapes and nature in this area can easily be compared to New Zealand. So impressive. You can see a few photos from the area here: http://www.ruepetitchamps.com/western-ireland/ 🙂

    • I would love to see that part of Ireland..I want to combine it in a trip with Scotland, just rent a car and go. I’m going to check your photos out!
